I thought I’d participate in revenge of Eve’s challenge G2k for this week.

The rules:

Use the tag #g2k

Create a pingback to this post

Answer each question honestly

The questions:

  1. In what areas of your do you find it hard, to be honest with yourself?

I am least honest with myself in regards to my cutting, and other unhealthy coping strategies.

  1. Have you put in an effort to change this or do you ignore it in hopes it disappears? I try to change it. I work hard in therapy to try to come up with alternative coping skills to use.
  2. How does this affect other areas of your life? It causes me emotional turmoil and pain, it worries my family and friends, it causes me to lie to them and I also feel ashamed of the ways in which I have coped.
  3. Can you define the underline fear in regards to this? If so, explain. I worry if I give up my unhealthy coping techniques, I wont be able to cope with my emotions and thats probably more scarier to me than hurting myself or numbing my feelings.
  4. Do you find that you are more of an honest or dishonest person around others? I used to be dishonest but over the past few years that has changed, I now try to always be honest, because honesty is best, even if sometimes the truth hurts.

  1. You will find the right way when you are ready! It is a process to let these behaviours go that have helped for a long time. Because they have even though they are not helpful or healthy.


  2. Thank you for participating. This g2k went a little in depth. At least you have become more honest with others and yourself. That shows growth.
